.s. companies also have very significant increases in costs and in particular in health care and energy and pensions. so what do you do when you have these big increases in costs, competition makes it very hard to pass on the costs? you cut other costs. and i think this has put enormous pressure on wages. so i think that's part of what's happening. the other thing that's happened is that is of the scale that can move an economy like this which again you first have to recognize that the movement has occurred and when it occurred. is the spread of information technologies across the economy and which is part of an even larger phenomenon which is the dominance of ideas or intangible assets in the creation of value in the u.s. economy. this is a big development. again, it started -- didn't start in 2000. it came much more to fruition in the last decade where the most important assets of u.s. companies became their intangible assets not their equipment, not their equipment buildings et cetera. and when you looked at what share of the what's called the book value of a company, that is how muc

'm not calling to have a job. the second question went straight at the president and said your energy secretary says it is not his job to keep energy prices down, do you think it is his job, and the next thing i know we were arguing about drilling in public lands. i went back and said the question was do you think it is the job of the government, and then they went off on the next public lands thing. then, you have been up so much time in this, that leads to one, two, three less town hall people. i did it a couple of times, as many times i felt i could do it without completely blow in the format. with guns, we went off on something. they started talking about single mothers. >> single mothers and marriage, yes. >> i will say that the format that has evolved is better today than back in the day when it was much more strict. we were told u.s. the question, no follow-up, two minutes, one minute, and i was told to interrupt it they did not. there was a red light and a buzzer. there were restrictions. today, they are given more time to have a conversation, and you learn more that way. come to the de
